Bahamas Junkanoo Festival Costume Parade Cow Bells copyright M. Timothy O'Keefe -


This is a simple Junkanoo costume but notice the careful color coordination between the watch, cape and fringed hat.

Like Carnival in Trinidad. Junkanoo has developed into a unique art form with its down distinct style. Bahamians call Junkanoo the "Soul of Bahamian Culture."

Today, Junkanoo is perhaps the only aspect of island life stands out as being truly Bahamian.
